Misconceptions About Your Legal Rights in a Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Misconception #1 - If I bring a claim for mesothelioma, it will be part of some big class action suit.

Each mesothelioma claim is handled individually. You will never be put in any class action lawsuit by our law firm.


Misconception #2 - If I want to recover compensation for mesothelioma, I will have to bring a law suit and go to court.

Many companies have set up trust funds to pay mesothelioma victims. These trust funds have billions of dollars in them. To claim your share, you do not need to file a law suit or go to court. However, if you do not claim the money in time, the money will go back to the companies that exposed you to asbestos.


Misconception #3 - If I bring a mesothelioma claim, I will get a bunch of legal bills.

Our law firm only gets paid if we recover for you. We advance all your costs. You will never get a bill from us.


Misconception #4 - If I recover any money from my mesothelioma claims, the government will send me a big tax bill.

All the money you recover for your injuries from mesothelioma is tax-free.


Misconception #5 - Someone in my family passed away from mesothelioma. Any claims they had were lost when they passed.

The family may still be entitled to compensation even if the mesothelioma victim has already passed. However, if you wait too long, these claims may be barred.
